Im really stuck iv created some sentences.

For example: I avoided him

I enjoyed playing the game

I forgot it

I hate him

I wanted to know for each whether it can appear in:

intransitive clause with an infinitival complement

intransitive clause with a present-participle complement

transitive clause with an infinitival complement

transitive clause with a present participle clause.

and can you also explain why.

Could you provide examples so to make you question clearer?
For example. i attempted to go. the word attempted can only take the form transitive clause with an infinitival complement and no other form.
